I have a web site using Wordpress and a forum plug-in (Simple-Press) that's been around for awhile and has become fairly popular. All of a sudden I've begun getting at least 3 to 6 bogus user registrations each day that are coming from IP addresses in Russia and eastern Europe. I don't really know why or how concerned I should be. They don't need to register to post comments on my blog and Akismet is almost 100% effective at getting rid of comment spam. They're also either not trying to post spam on my forum or they can't get past the Captcha/challenge it uses. [more inside]

My website got hacked the other night; a piece of code was inserted that generated spam. I'm technical enough to have found the offending code, and I simply removed it, but I'm baffled as to how the code got inserted in the first place…. (more inside) [more inside]
My blog is getting bombarded by a new kind of pingback spam. The pingbacks are produced by a WordPress plugin that appears to mine the web for links related to blog content, which then triggers a pingback notification. Can anyone help me identify the plugin, so I can possibly work to block the pingbacks? [more inside]

I have a Wordpress site. In spidering the site, and coming up with the little synopsis underneath the title, Google, Bing and Yahoo all believe that it's not a personal Web site but a spammy list of prescription drugs for sale. I don't understand why. [more inside]

WordpressFilter: Haven't blogged in about three months, and am considering a return at the same URL, but don't want to inherit all my old spam comments. Would deleting the Wordpress installation at that address then re-installing it essentially reset the spam, allowing me to better control it this time? FWIW, I've been using Akismet, etc., to monitor and catch most spam but would like as clean a slate as possible.
Porn sites are spamming my web stats. Make it stop. [more inside]
I have a WordPress blog (linked on my profile page if that's helpful). It is set up to notify me when there are comments on postings. I've been getting spam comments and deleting them. They disappear from the post where they appeared. However, they DON'T disappear from the "recent comments" module on my homepage. This module contains a link to the spam URLs they are propagating. I know some SQL but almost no PHP. Is this a common problem? Any suggestions?
